    Marsalis is one of a new breed...literally. Genetically engineered by the U.S. government to embody the naked aggression and primal survival skills that centuries of civilization have erased from humankind, Thirteens were intended to be the ultimate military fighting force. The project was scuttled, however, when a fearful public branded the supersoldiers dangerous mutants, dooming the Thirteens to forced exile on Earth's distant, desolate Mars colony. But Marsalis found a way to slip back.

    L. says: "WOW, Morgan Does it again!"
    "Another Splendid Read."
    Overall

    Written a little in the cyberpunk style, but that is not where the treat really lives in this book. Richard K. Morgan plays against today’s society in such a way that 'Thirteen' is reminiscent of the crucible.

    Mr. Morgan has written a fantastic book about the future we live with right now. He asks of his characters questions you and your friends are, or should be asking right now. This is a terrific listen, which will leave you thinking, and entertained.

    The reader does a good job of maintaining his characters, and their accents. This makes for a smooth transition between characters.

    A wonderful surprise, Mr. Morgan, one I will read/listen to several more times before I answer the questions the book brought forth for me. I hope you will continue to write these entertaining, and thought provoking era pieces.
